3/146 Bagstone Court Farmhouse and
Bakehouse 2 yards to south east

Farmhouse, thought to have been a grange of Kingswood Abbey. C14, altered C17
and later; extended early C19. Rendered; double Roman tiled roof, with lowest
2 courses of stone slates to the older block. 2 storeys. L-plan. The early
C19 extension is at the south: two 16-pane glazing bar sash windows, that on the
first floor to the right has a semi-circular head; 6 panel door to the right
under a fanlight and semi-circular hood. The mediaeval block runs east-west at
the north end of the early C19 extension: 3 bays with the easternmost bay being
a C17/C18 dairy extension at a slightly lower height and with a single storey
lean-to on the north side; mixture of C20 2-light casement windows and a C18
multi-pane sash window on the north elevation; C20 doors to the east.
Interior. The mediaeval block consisted of a cellar with a solar over at the
west end and a 2 bay open hall at the east end, which was floored over with the
insertion of a stack in the C16/C17. The cellar is at a lower level, has a
flagged floor, a stop-chamfered beam and lodged joists. The hall has a stop-
chamfered beam and lodged joists. Roof. The central truss-of the 2 bay hall
is an arch-braced collar beam with open spandrels and tenonend purlins; the
2 bays have one tier of curved windbraces and some of the principal members are
stop chamfered; the principal rafters are tenoned into a saddle piece which is
cut away on the underside to form a cusped and ogee decorative feature; all the
wood is smoke blackened. The truss to the west has short principals tenoned
into a slight cambered collar and a pair of upper crucks above; the windbracing
is missing and the timbers are clean. The roof is covered with woven matting
(post C16/C17) which formerly supported thatch. Bakehouse, 2 yards to south
east, is C18. Rubble; double Roman tiled roof. 2 storeys. 2 bays: 2-light
casement windows with square wooden-mullions. Plank door at east end.
Interior: stone floor; oven and a copper; the upper floor is missing.
